Since graduating, he has been the Principle of Bond Street Dental in Melbourne, President of the Australian Society of General Dentistry (previously known as the Aesthetic Society – Victoria Branch), a member of the Australian Dental Association, the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, and the Australian Osseointegration Society as well as the founder of the Victorian Centre of Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry.
With his extensive experience and emphasis on reconstructive and aesthetic dentistry, Dr Benge partnered with Dr Malo to bring the world-leading, innovative All-on-4® treatment philosophy to Australia. Dr Benge founded the Next Smile Super Clinic in Sydney and now leads the team at Next Smile Melbourne. Although Dr Benge treats patients in his Sydney clinic, he is based in Melbourne.
All-on-4® Dental Implants
The innovative treatment philosophy of All-on-4® has become the gold standard in procedure and protocol with ground-breaking techniques and clinically proven results. All-on-4® is an advanced method of restorative dentistry. It is the most technologically advanced, relatively pain-free, and efficient method yet.
The All-on-4® treatment method includes four implants, made from the highest quality Nobel Biocare components, inserted into the jawbone. Two implants at the front and two at the back can support an entire bridge of teeth. The minimalist treatment approach means there is no need for invasive and painful bone grafts, where extra structure is added to your jawbone. Without the need for bone grafts means that the healing process is sped up as well as requiring fewer appointments leading to a lower average cost- saving you time and money.
At Next Smile Super Clinic, we strictly adhere to the Malo protocol and procedures to achieve outstanding results with each client at a 98% success rate. The effectiveness of this procedure is thanks to the Malo protocol that includes the two-bridge system. You will receive a provisional bridge in the first stage of the two-bridge system. This is fitted within 24 hours of surgery, but usually on the same day. It is so efficient that others may not even notice that you have had surgery with your new, fully functioning, gleaming smile as the only tell-tale. While you enjoy your new smile, your final bridge is manufactured and refined in our in-house lab to your exact preferences. The Malo protocol and procedures lead to the most effective and predictable outcome with an assessment of healing, health, and stability of the new implants as the final bridge is trial fitted for the most optimal shape and fit for a lifetime of smiles.
The effectiveness, efficiency, and high success rate of All-on-4® dental implants in Melbourne is not the only benefit. The minimalist approach to the procedure means it is less painful than some other restorative surgeries and a faster healing journey. There is no need for bone grafts which could extend the healing process. The procedure only uses existing bone and is designed for those with minimal jawbones with the potential even to strengthen jawbones over time. All-on-4® has improved the lives of many as they are a fixed set of natural-looking and feeling teeth. Unlike dentures that may only last five-ten years even with proper care, All-on-4® dental implants in Melbourne can last a lifetime. They function as though they were your natural teeth, ready to chew, bite, smile and laugh from when your provisional bridge is fitted.
Who is a suitable candidate to get All-on-4® dental implants in Melbourne?
Predominantly, the All-on-4® treatment is for those with no teeth or who cannot retain natural teeth. This is not a procedure for those wishing to keep any natural teeth intact. Some of the ideal candidates for All-on-4® may seem the least likely. All-on-4® is designed for those ineligible for conventional implants due to insufficient jawbone density or those with osteoporosis. Those with osteoporosis have poor-quality jawbones and may think they are unsuitable for this procedure; however, All-on-4 dental implants do not require bone grafting. This allows more people to regain confidence in their smile with a fixed set of natural-looking and functioning teeth. Due to bone reabsorption from missing teeth or sinus issues in the upper jaw, those with lower jaw bone density may also believe they aren’t suitable candidates. Patients with these issues usually require bone grafting; however, with the All-on-4® protocols and procedure, this is no longer the case. The All-on-4® treatment has allowed many who once couldn’t regain their confidence and transform their life with their smile.
Although All-on-4® is designed to cater to those with lower jawbone densities, osteoporosis and intricate, complicated dental situations, a few factors could still impact your suitability. The best way to determine if you are suitable for the All-on-4® treatment is to visit an All-on-4® dentist in Melbourne who will assess your situation and discuss the possible outcomes to renew your smile.
